Stola, a young man in his late twenties, is spending his summer partying at music festivals in Istria. One day he runs into Roko, an old acquaintance, who is on a mission to discover medieval frescoes in a nearby monastery. Roko convinces Stola and a random group of partygoers to join him in his search. However, when their bus breaks down in the middle of nowhere, the brief excursion turns into an allegorical journey into the unknown. Their wandering through the picturesque Istrian landscape is shrouded in a veil of magical realism, creating one of the most peculiar contemporary Croatian films. After its premiere in Rotterdam, it successfully screened at the Pula Film Festival, where it won Best Film and Best Sound Design.
